Prior t that the Germans marched forward in an irresistible manner, and then,the change came. Just as they had nearly reached their objective—Paris—a change came o'er the scene, and, like the boy who picked up a piece of hotiron, the Germans appeared anxious' to let go what they already had got hold of. The Germans hare, however, now lakeo up a defensive position on the River Aisne, and a terrific battle has beeu raging for the past ten days.

AN UNDISCOVERED CRIME, [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
AN UNDISCOVERED CRIME, In 1720 M. de Savary, a ■well-known philosopher and member of French society, was mysteriously murdered in Paris in such a manner that the crime has become historical. One day a gentleman visited him, presumably with an introduction, and M. de Savary pressed him to stay and dine. The stranger accepted the in vitation, but when M. de Savary's valel went to the cellar to fetch some cham pagne, the guest followed him, and, after stunning him with a hammer, murdered him. The cook was killed in the same way, and the murderer after wards killed M. de Savary, who, being a cripple, was unable to defend bim »elf. The perpetrator of these hor rible crimes then left the house, after writing under a clock the following inscription: "Look at his life, and you will not be surprised at his death!" No clue was ever obtained as to the motive of the murders, and the affair is wholly involved in mystery.
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
A NEW KIND OF ANIMAL. The showman looked worried and thoughtful. His menagerie was dense ly crowded, it is true; but how was he 'to get tliem out, so as to make room for those waiting to pay for admission outside? At length a bright idea oc curred to him. Painting up in large letters on a piece of calico: "This way to the egress," he hung it up at a convenient angle of his show. The simple country people, thinking "egress" was some strange new animal just added to the collection, passed through the slit in the curtain, and, to their amazement, found themselves out side the show. Seeing the crowd mak ing its way to the corner Where the "new animal" was on show, everybody followed, and the outgoing stream be ing so great, no one, when once caught in its eddy, could turn back. ; Then the showman smiled, and let In those waiting to pay for admission outside the main entrance.
KEEPING ONE'S TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
KEEPING ONE'S TEMPER. One of the most difficult things-la &e world sometimes seems to be to keep on'e temper. Both people and things seem to conspire sometimes to annoy us, and we really feel that it would be a satis faction to "let fly," as do some of our neighbors. As a matter of fact, it would be nothing of the kind; we should only cause irritation to others, and their irritation would probably re act again upon us, making life ten times more difficult than before. A calm serenity of temper, and a Belf-control which keeps a person un ruffled in the petty annoyances and ills of everyday life, indicate the pos session of perfect mental health. Now adays people are very fond of saying that so-and-so was "just mad," mean ing very angry, but it would be well if temper were more often seriously re garded as madness. It may be pre ventable madness, but madness it is while it lasts, and there is seldom any one who is made more unhappy by it than the person who gives way to it. In...

Kitchener's Way. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 2 October 1914
Kitchener's Way. Lord' Kitchener's methods- are illus trated by a characteristic incident which occurred soon after his acceptance of the War Secretaryship. , He sent to the London post ollice authorities a requisition for 30 experienced telegraphists for the army on active ser vice. The department's stall' had already been seriously depleted by the demands of the war, and a high post oftice ollicial informed Lord Kitchener that the men could not be spared. " Tell him that if the men are not sent in half an hour I'll come and take them myself," was the War Secretary's curt ultimatum. A messenger was immediately sent round the staff at work, and the 30 se lected men were on the way to their new duties before the half hour expired.
